Attention Span Short Term Memory

Impairment of attention span and short-term memory of a few minutes duration are common following stroke. Attention deficits result in an inability either to focus on immediate events or to establish a new focus unless a current stimulus is removed. As a consequence, an activity that requires a sequence of steps, such as eating a meal with two or three courses, cannot he completed. Lack of concentration is also unhelpful in relearning eating patterns. Removing or minimizing distractions at mealtimes, simplifying the complexity of information necessary to regain eating skills, and providing verbal, written or auditory alarms as reminders to eat are important in overcoming this problem.
